Quinn Russell lives and works in Holywood, Northern Ireland. Following some major changes in her life, she began painting with more purpose just over a year ago. Self taught, she enjoys working in strong colours using thick, textured acrylic paint.
Quinn is drawn to portraying animals- in particular hares. The hare has a great deal of meaning to her as it is an animal that symbolises a creative way of looking at life. Hares have a naturally solitary nature and are not quick to conform. The hare teaches us to reach for our dreams and not let anything get in the way. That is what Quinn tries to do with her process of painting.
